Tokyo stocks rose Thursday morning after weak Japanese data raised the market's expectations on new stimulus policies by the central bank of Japan.
The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 242.32 points, or 1.41 percent, from Wednesday to 17,533.81.
The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange was up 17.61 points, or 1.27 percent, to 1,401.91.
Gainers were led by warehousing and harbor transportation services, mining as well as electric power and gas issues.
